VOl. 46, 110. 1] CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES ANNUAL STATISTICS 



CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES— ANNUAL STATISTICS 

Annual report blanks were sent in June, 1950, to all California 
libraries except elementary public school and church libraries, and those 
which belong to private individuals and are not open to the public. 
Except, when otherwise noted, statistics from the public library annual 
reports cover the period from July 1, 1949 to June 30, 1950. The school 
year 1949-50 is used as the time basis for school library reports. All 
reports are arranged under city and county by name of library, and 
counties are arranged alphabetically. To determine the county in which 
any place is located see the place index, page 9, which includes loca- 
tions of branch and station libraries that are listed elsewhere only under 
the main library. For arrangement of libraries by subject or type refer 
to the annual Index Supplement to News Notes of California Libraries. 

The Public Library Statistical Report, a standard form for gather- 
ing statistics on city, county and district libraries throughout the United 
States, was used as a basis for the mimeographed forms we distribute. 
Special forms on postal cards are used for annual reports from all other 
types of libraries. 

Problems in regard to the collecting of library statistics center chiefly 
on three objects : currency of news, accuracy of information, and uni- 
formity in methods of calculating totals. For accomplishment of these 
objects, directories, professional journals and printed items about Cali- 
fornia libraries (as gathered by a newspaper clipping agency) are 
checked constantly for facts in addition to those reported directly to the 
State Library each year by librarians. Chief librarians listed under names 
of libraries are those most recently reported in office up to the time of 
publishing these statistics. 

In order that libraries will compile the totals they report in a uni- 
form manner, the following requirements and definitions have been 
applied : 



The assessed valuation as given for 
each county does not include the value of 
intangible property, a third of the tax 
on which goes to the county. Figures are 
based on the annual statement, "Value of 
Property in and Indebtedness of Each 
County," California State Controller's 
Office. 

Population statistics are given for 
counties and for all towns having munic- 
ipal libraries. Federal government popu- 
lation figures as of the preliminary Cen- 
sus Report in 1950 have been used. 

County law libraries are all supported 
by income received from the $1.00 fee for 
filing papers in civil suits,^ so this infor- 
mation is not stated with statistics for 
each of them. 

For the purpose of this publication, a 
municipal or city free library is one 
which has been legally established by city 
officials, is supported by income from tax- 
ation or other public funds, and has its 
own trustees or other civil governing 
body. 



An agency is any place, such as a cen- 
tral library, branch, station, or book- 
mobile station, that, as an integral part 
of the public library system, distributes 
books or otherwise renders library service 
to the public. 

The total number of distributing agen- 
cies of a public library includes the cen- 
tral library as well as its branches and 
stations. To avoid duplication in count, 
then, the central office of a county library 
is neither counted again nor listed as a 
separate community branch or station, 
regardless of the type of service it gives 
to the community in which it is located. 

A branch is an auxiliary library with 
separate quarters, a permanent basic col- 
lection of books, a permanent staff, and a 
regular schedule. It must meet all of these 
requirements. 

A station is a place from which books 
are distributed (including regular book- 
mobile stops), but at which there is no 
permanent collection or library staff.

NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES 



[Jan., 1951 



A school which is served by a public 
library and has not a central library 
room meeting the conditions of a branch 
is a school station. It is counted just as 
one agency even though the books may 
be divided into a number of class-room 
collections. 

While the federal report blank has 
centered interest on housing of agencies, 
this State Library is interested in type of 
service given in agencies (e.g. school and 
community). For our purpose a branch 
housed in a school but giving service 
entirely to the community is something 
very different from a school agency affili- 
ated for school service. The first is 
counted as a community agency, the sec- 
ond as a school agency. 

A school branch or station which gives 
some community service is designated by 
(c) following the name of such distribut- 
ing agency of the county library. A com- 
munity branch or station which is merely 
located in a school building and not con- 
nected otherwise with the school library 
service is listed only as a community 
agency. 

Municipal, district and high school li- 
braries ivhich have affiliated with a 
county library for service are counted in 
total number of distributing agencies of 
that county library although listed sepa- 
rately from both its branches and sta- 
tions. 

Branch library statistics are omitted 
under the names of various branches. 
They are included, however, in the gen- 
eral figures given under the central li- 
brary. For this reason, circulation and 
other statistics for their own books only 
and not for county service are shown, as 
a rule, by high school, municipal and 
other libraries which are affiliated with 
a county free library. 

Total circulation is the count of one 
for each bound volume, pamphlet or peri- 
odical lent for home use, from the cen- 
tral library or any agency, and the count 
of each renewal. A county or city library 
includes in its total circulation the count 
of supplementary books lent from schools 
for home use, but not those used in class 
rooms only. A county library also in- 
cludes the circulation of county library 
books from all its agencies (including 
affiliated libraries, which should not in- 
clude such count in their own annual 
report totals). 

Circulation should not be estimated, 
but statistics should be kept of actual 
count according to an established system. 
Municipal libraries serving schools as 



regular stations of the central library 
will report the count of home use (loans 
for overnight or longer from the school 
or class room collections ) . When loans 
are made in the name of a teacher of a 
school just as an individual borrower 
(rather than for a station) the count 
would, of course, be one for each book 
lent and one for each renewal recorded. 

Inter-library loans between libraries 
which are an integral part of the same 
system (branches, stations and affiliated 
libraries) are not counted in total circu- 
lation, but rather in shipments from a 
central library. The circulation from such 
agencies is counted as noted above. State 
Library books borrowed are included in 
count of inter-library loans and also in 
circulation of the borrowing library. 

A shipment from the central library is 
the lot of items sent to one agency at one 
time. One shipment might be two pack- 
ages or a dozen, and is really a count of 
the times books and other material have 
been sent to branches and stations. The 
total items shipped would be a count of 
the individual books or articles in the 
packages sent. 

We consider a special request to be 
a request emanating from an individual 
borrower, for the central library to sup- 
ply, through its branch or station, a spe- 
cific book or material on one subject. In 
this regard community service only is 
considered, because practically all school 
requests seem to be special requests. A 
request from a branch assistant or bor- 
rower for "more detective stories" would 
not count as a special request. The count 
is to be made of actual number of re- 
quests received at the central library, 
because all the requests fox*warded are 
worked over by the headquarters staff 
even if they can not all be filled. (Items 
sent to agencies in response to requests 
are counted under shipments.) 

Janitors and building force, as well as 
untrained assistants in charge of com- 
munity branches and stations (of whom 
some are unpaid), are included in the 
total count of employees.

Free public libraries in 53 towns or

moved to the San Fernando Valley, where 
a building was rented to serve as head- 
quarters and a book depot for the book- 
mobile service. 

Opening of a Popular Library featured 
the Book Week celebration in 1949. It 
is housed in book racks in the corridors 
of the Central Library and features books 
of interest to the general reader. Heavy 
use during its first seven months proved 
the great need for a general collection of 
this type, and it is planned to continue 
and expand the Popular Library. 

The reclassification of professional per- 
sonnel, woi-ked out during 1948-49, was 
put into effect as of July 1, 1949. By the 
consolidation of seven classes into three, 
the total number of professional classifii- 
cations in the Library was reduced to 
eight, and greater flexibility in the lines 
of promotion was assured. 

The two large Traveling Branches 
carry both adult and juvenile books to 
community stops. The smaller bookmo- 
bile is all-juvenile, and carries books to 
children in the elementary schools in the 
downtown area, where heavy traffic pre- 
vents their coming to the Central Li- 
brary.

FIELD REPRESENTATIVE 
Thelma Reid. 

The work of the Field Representative 
includes a variety of activities relating to 
the establishment and administration of 
municipal and county libraries. Under the 
direction of the State Librarian, a clear- 
ing house of information on library prac- 
tice, administrative policies and profes- 
sional procedures is maintained through 
correspondence, interviews and field 
trips. Advice and recommendations re- 
garding library problems are provided to 
librarians, trustees and local officials 
upon request. 

From time to time the Field Repre- 
sentative undertakes investigations of 
special problems, compiling and inter- 
preting pertinent data in the field or in 
State Library files, and prepares articles 
and talks on library questions and activi- 
ties. Surveys of city and county libraries 
are made when requested by the proper 
authorities. Statements on the applica- 
tion and interpretation of library law are 
prepared. Suggestions and advice pertain- 
ing to the establishment of county li- 
braries is given to individuals, organiza- 
tions, and interested local officials. Other 
assignments include inspection of county 
libraries, conferring with state and local 
officials regarding school library service, 
departmental and special libraries. 

In carrying forward this work there is 
maintained in the Field Representative's 
Office files of library building plans, pic- 
tures, publicity, equipment catalogs, legal 
opinions, ordinances, library contracts 
and data on school and public library 
service. Current additions to the collec- 
tion are welcomed. Librarians are urged 
to send copies of plans for new or remod- 
eled buildings, pictures, reports of special 
activities and unusual booklets or pub- 
licity releases which may be of assistance 
to other librarians. 



BOOK REPAIR SECTION 

Mrs. Lulu M. Thomsen, Supervisor. 

Responsibility for the repair and pres- 
ervation of books and other library ma- 
terials is centered in this Section. The 
work consists of repairing and recovering 
books, making slip covers for valuable 
books, binding certain newspapers and 
ephemeral materials, mounting and fram- 
ing pictures, maps, etc., marking titles 
and numbers on bindings. 

BOOKS FOR THE BLIND SECTION 

Mrs. Virginia S. Simpson, Supervising 
Librarian. 

Embossed books in the various types 
are sent to any blind resident of Cali- 
fornia upon application. Lists of mate- 
rial available for loan will be sent o*n 
request. Writing appliances and games 
for the blind are lent as samples to those 
wishing to buy such articles, so that the 
different kinds can be tried before they 
are ordered. Addresses of firms supplying 
all articles lent will be furnished on 
request. 

Books sent between blind persons and 
an institution distributing embossed liter- 
ature are carried free through the mails. 

A catalog of all books in Moon type in 
the Library up to October 1, 1926, and 
one including all books in Braille up to 
April 1, 1927, will be sent to anyone re- 
questing them. Catalogs of Braille and 
Moon books received through the Library 
of Congress Project, Books for the Adult 
Blind, are also available upon request for 
the period 1931-1948. News Notes, re- 
printed from Neivs Notes of California 
Libraries, carrying a list of additions to 
the Library each quarter, is sent to each 
blind reader. The State Library will be 
glad to have borrowers who care to do so 
write any letters or requests for books to 
the Library in Braille. 

Attention of the borrower is drawn to 
the fact that books for return to the Li- 
brary should always be placed inside mail 
boxes and not left on top of them. 
' Again we request borrowers not to send 
post card receipts or requests to the Li- 
brary inside of books. When books are 
returned they often go out very quickly 
again and the pages are not opened up 
one by one. Therefore, a request sent in 
that way can very easily be lost for many 
months. The post cards should be sent in 
the mail separately. 

Under the provisions of an Act entitled 
"An act to provide books for the adult 



8 — 35349 



226 



NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES [Jan., 1951 



blind," approved by Congress in 1931, and 
subsequently amended, an annual appro- 
priation of $1,000,000 is authorized, 
$200,000 for books in raised characters, 
and the balance for sound-reproduction 
records and for the maintenance and 
replacement of reproducers. 

The Library of Congress distributes to 
the various printing houses for the blind 
the assignments of printing books for the 
blind readers of the United States. The 
California State Library has been desig- 
nated as one of the centers to receive the 
books and the talking book records sup- 
plied from these appropriations. Many 
titles have been received and are reported 
currently in the list of books added, with 
the note that they are provided by the 
United States government through the 
Library of Congress. See page 265. 

• Since May, 1936, the State Library has 
had the responsibility of assigning 2,159 
talking book machines to blind persons in 
California and Nevada. These machines 
are distributed as loans for an indefinite 
period. Those persons who are interested 
in borrowing them should write to the 
State Library. They will be sent applica- 
tion blanks in turn as more machines are 
available for distribution. 

A word of explanation regarding the 
various grades of Braille will clarify the 
following accession and circulation fig- 
ures. Prior to 1932 there was only one 
Braille Grade 2 type, which was known 
as European Braille. Books in the Eng- 
lish language printed in this type were 
published only in England. The United 
States publishing houses printed most 
books for the blind in Revised Braille, or 
Braille Grade 1£. In 1932 the Uniform 
Type Commission, representing all Eng- 
lish speaking countries, met in New York 
and agreed to adopt Standard English 
Braille, or Braille Grade 2, as the stand- 
ard type for press-Braille books for 
adults. Standard English Braille Grade 2 
is a modified form of European Braille, 
having 189 contractions. There will be no 
further additions to the European Braille 
collection. 

The first book was lent June 13, 1905. 

Total accessions are now 52,948, as fol- 
lows : European Braille books, 2,460 ; 
Moon books, 11,839 ; Braille Grade 1 and 
Grade 1| books, 13,713 ; Braille Grade 2 
books, 15,523 ; all other types, 215 ; 
Braille books about music and music 
scores, 2,388 ; appliances, 92 ; games, 72 ; 
maps, 40; talking books (containers), 
6,606. There are 16,430 magazines in 
Moon and Braille. 



During October, November and Decem- 
ber, 12,082 books, etc. were lent as fol- 
lows : Braille Grades 1 and 1$, 342 ; 
Braille Grade 2, 1,750; Moon, 1,401; 
magazines, 276 ; talking books (contain- 
ers), 8,310. 

Home Teaching 

Miss Patricia Byrnes, T. W. C. A., 550 
Pacific Ave., Long Beach, telephone 
66294, is home teacher for the blind in 
southern California substituting for Mrs. 
Jill O'Connell who is on leave of absence. 
She gives lessons regularly in Los An- 
geles and vicinity and makes occasional 
trips to San Diego. 

Mrs. Juliet Bindt, home teacher for the 
northern part of the State, is located in 
Berkeley at 2709 Derby St., Zone 5, tele- 
phone THornwall 3-8680. She gives les- 
sons in the counties around the Bay and 
down the San Joaquin valley and makes 
occasional trips to other parts of northern 
California. 

From October 1 to December 31, the 
home teachers gave 174 lessons in the 
homes of the blind and 8 lessons in li- 
braries. They made 130 visits and calls in 
connection with the work for purposes 
other than giving lessons. 

During the quarter, Mrs. Bindt and 
Miss Byrnes spent 199 hours on corre- 
spondence and preparing lessons. They 
wrote 217 letters and 181 postals, and 
received 197 letters and 59 postals. They 
also answered and made 318 telephone 
calls. The various other activities in con- 
nection with the work of the home 
teachers cannot easily be tabulated. 

CALIFORNIA SECTION 

Caroline Wenzel, Supervising Librarian. 

The California Section of the State 
Library has a working collection of 
printed and manuscript sources dealing 
with the history of the state in its many 
phases. This section collects and pre- 
serves books, manuscripts, maps, periodi- 
cals, newspapers, photographs, and other 
material bearing upon the development of 
California. The entire collection is avail- 
able for reference and much of it also 
circulates. The staff of the department, 
by maintaining a familiarity with the 
material in its specialized field and by 
preparing indexes and other keys, is able 
to give expert assistance to students, 
authors, librarians, and others interested 
in the State's history. 

Among the valuable reference tools in 
the Section is the newspaper card index, 
being chiefly an index to the California 



vol. 46, no. 1] 



CALIFORNIA STATE LIBRARY 



227 



material in a file of San Francisco news- 
papers beginning with 1847, but also con- 
taining references to the earlier Califor- 
nian (first published in 1846 at Mon- 
terey) and to portions of a few other files. 
The index card gives a brief reference to 
the article, the name of the paper, the 
date, page, and column. 

An extensive information index is also 
maintained. This index is of great assist- 
ance in locating sketches of California 
persons and places and items of local 
historical interest. 

For many years biographical informa- 
tion pertaining to California pioneers, 
authors, artists and musicians has been 
collected, and this file now comprises a 
unique source of such data. Other special- 
ties are the collection of California fic- 
tion, dramatic material, printed indexes 
to the great registers of voters of the 
state, business papers, and letters and 
diaries of pioneers. 

The collection of California news- 
papers now numbers over 20,000 bound 
volumes, and there are numerous files of 
California periodicals. 

The installation of microfilm reading 
machines has made available to public 
use the library's growing microfilm col- 
lection. Most current California news- 
papers now received are being recorded 
on microfilm by the library's photocopy- 
ist. The collection of microfilms also in- 
cludes files of several early and rare Cali- 
fornia newspapers and some few other 
miscellaneous items. Films are filed in 
special humidity-controlled steel cabinets 
readily accessible to users of the reading 
machines. 

During October, November and Decem- 
ber, 336 catalog, 4,336 information, and 
5,861 newspaper cards have been added to 
the indexes ; 76 processed books and 
pamphlets, 71 bound volumes of periodi- 
cals, 2 bound volumes of newspapers and 
212 rolls of microfilm copies of California 
newspapers have been made available in 
the Section. 410 author and subject re- 
quest slips were received and 316 letters 
requiring research were answered. 

Pioneers and Early Settlers 
The following pioneer cards, for per- 
sons arriving in California before the 
year 1860, have been received during the 
past quarter : 

Christopher A. Berger, ca. 1855 
Henry T. Bowman, 1852 
Thomas Browne, 1859 
Mrs. James Carolan, ca. 1855 
John Ballard Coldwell, 1850 
William Kemp Fenton, 1854 



Mrs. Maurice Griffin, ca. 1855 
Charles Gay Hooker, 1850 
Moses Harris Lichtenstein, 1850 
Robert McCollough, 1858 
Benjamin Franklin Rogers, 1850 
Mrs. Benjamin Franklin Rogers, 1849 
James Mitchel Stephenson, 1849 
Peter Van Maren, ca. 1856 

CATALOG SECTION 
Olive Swain, Supervising Librarian. 

The work of the Catalog Section con- 
sists of classifying and cataloging the new 
material acquired by the Library and 
maintaining the public catalog, the offi- 
cial catalog, the shelf list, and the Union 
Catalog. 

The Union Catalog consists of cards 
from the county libraries and various city 
libraries in California, cards from var- 
ious university libraries and the printed 
cards from the Library of Congress. Since 
the Library of Congress discontinued 
supplying cards to depository catalogs, 
on December 31, 1946, Library of Con- 
gress entries have appeared in the Li- 
brary of Congress Author Catalog. This 
publication supplements the Union Cata- 
log. 

During October, November and Decem- 
ber, 869 books were cataloged ; 5,473 were 
added to the catalogs ; 53,427 cards were 
filed in the Union Catalog. 

GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS 
SECTION 

Evelyn Huston, Supervising Librarian. 

The State Library's resources in the 
field of federal, state, county, municipal 
and foreign publications were brought 
together in 1909 to form the Government 
Documents Section. Its function is to 
select, acquire, arrange, and assist in the 
use of this material. 

The Library was made a depository 
before 1895 for all the U. S. publications 
distributed by the Superintendent of 
Documents. Since 1907 the State Library 
has received copies of all printed Cali- 
fornia state publications and in 1945, 
under the Library Distribution Act (Cal. 
Stats. 1945 ch. 1403), was made a de- 
pository library for all California docu- 
ments. Exchanges are maintained with 
many other states for official publications 
of those states. 

Under the 1933 law, as amended in 
1939 (Cal. Stats. 1939 ch. 430) , the State 
Library is entitled to receive copies of all 
publications issued by the cities and 



228 



NEWS NOTES OF CALIFORNIA LIBRARIES [Jan., 1951 



counties of California. Accessions for the 
past quarter may be found on page 259. 

A special collection of reports and pub- 
lications is also maintained by this Sec- 
tion. Reports from foreign governments, 
particularly those of English speaking 
countries, are to be found here. 

A stock of duplicate California state 
publications is maintained for the benefit 
of libraries wishing to complete their 
files. Discarded or duplicate California 
state documents from other institutions 
will be accepted, on a selective basis, 
after shipping arrangements have been 
made with the State Library. 

Maps 

The Library's map resources are 
housed in a special room adjacent to the 
Documents Section. Special emphasis is 
placed on California maps. The Library, 
however, is a depository for U. S. Geo- 
logical Survey topographic maps. Maps 
on California, issued by the U. S. Corps 
of Engineers, Forest Service, and the 
Coast and Geodetic Survey, are repre- 
sented in the collection. Maps from many 
of the California state mapping agencies 
—Division of Mines, Division of For- 
estry, and Division of Highways — are 
available for reference use. An unusually 
fine collection of California county maps 
is to be found in this collection. 

LAW AND LEGISLATIVE 
REFERENCE SECTION 
Herbert V. Clayton, Supervising Li- 
brarian. 

The Law and Legislative Reference 
Section is fully equipped with the latest 
reports, digests, encyclopedias, and text- 
books, the statutes of other states, the 
United States, Great Britain, Canada, 
Australia and certain other foreign coun- 
tries, and briefs of counsel in cases de- 
cided in the California Supreme and 
Appellate courts. It is the policy to lend 
books through other libraries where pos- 
sible. State officers are entitled to borrow 
books direct, however. All books are sub- 
ject to recall, if required by a state offi- 
cer, or if, in the opinion of the Librarian, 
a recall is fair and expedient. 

In addition to special service to mem- 
bers of the Legislature, information on 
the laws of California and other states 
and countries is given on inquiry from 
librarians and individuals. 



ORDER SECTION 
Margaret E. Preston, Supervising Li- 
brarian. 

The Order Section places orders for all 
books, periodicals and other publications 
purchased by the State Library. It also 
receives these materials, accessions them 
and forwards them to the Catalog Sec- 
tion. 

The selection of books for the Library 
is done by the Order Librarian jointly 
with the Reference Librarian. Advice on 
selection is given by other members of the 
staff, particularly in fields relating to 
their work. 

The policy of the California State Li- 
brary, funds permitting, is to furnish 
needed books to the various state depart- 
ments and to maintain an adequate col- 
lection of standard and scholarly works 
in nearly all fields. This collection is used 
to fill local requests and to furnish exten- 
sion service through the city and county 
libraries of California. It is assumed that 
the smaller libraries will be able to buy 
fiction, light non-fiction, and children's 
books to fill the needs of their communi- 
ties. The State Library makes an effort 
to supplement this service with books 
which many small libraries cannot buy. 
Our purchasing is therefore rather 
closely limited to the" more substantial 
non-fiction, including technical books and 
scholarly works in all fields except 
medicine. 

During October, November and Decem- 
ber, 2,598 books and 8 prints were acces- 
sioned. 1 book was withdrawn. 

PERIODICALS SECTION 

Lily M. Tilden, Senior Librarian. 

The Periodicals Section handles news- 
papers, magazines and certain other 
serials received by the Library, recording 
their receipt, distributing them to the 
proper sections of the Library, collecting 
and processing them for binding. 

PRINTS SECTION 
Mrs. Alicia M. Hook, Librarian. 

The Prints Section is housed in a spe- 
cially planned and equipped room, in 
vvhich are kept the prints acquired by the 
State Library. In display cases can be 
shown about 50 prints at a time and ex- 
hibits are constantly maintained. Visitors 
are invited. 

During the past quarter 4 new prints 
were added to the collection, making a 



vol. 46, no. 1] 



CALIFORNIA STATE LIBRARY 



229 



total of 4,945. No new bookplates were 
added, leaving the previous total at 3,808. 

There were 708 visitors to the room in 
October, November and December. Total 
attendance for the State Library's Cen- 
tennial year topped all previous records, 
with 7,860 visitors in the Prints Room. 

The exhibit in October was of water- 
color drawings of the theater, mostly 
characters from Gilbert and Sullivan but 
some from Shakespeare and Dickens, by 
Frederick Blanchard. A second selection 
of fine prints and books from the large 
private collection of Robert H. Berry of 
Sacramento was shown in November. The 
prints were new acquisitions since the 
showing in November, 1948. In Decem- 
ber, for the twenty -first consecutive year, 
the travelling annual exhibit of the Print 
Makers Society of California was shown. 

PROPERTY AND SHIPPING 
SECTION 
Harlo Whipple, Storekeeper. 

The responsibility is centered in this 
Section for library equipment and sup- 
plies, printing of library forms and ship- 
ping of books and other library materials 
on inter-library loans. 

REFERENCE SECTION 

Beulah Mumm, Supervising Librarian. 

The Reference Section has the respon- 
sibility for circulation of books and mag- 
azines, except those borrowed from the 
Law and Legislative Reference Section 
and from the Books for the Blind Sec- 
tion. It also handles all requests for books 
and information except those referred to 
the specialized departments of the Li- 
brary. 

A collection of general reference books 
is shelved in James L. Gillis Hall, the 
main reading room. 

The policy of the State Library is to 
lend books through other libraries where 
possible. Individuals in communities 
without local library service may borrow 
directly upon making arrangements with 
the State Library. 

Through an extended reference service 
to state agencies and employees the Li- 
brary is contributing to in-service train- 
ing in the state program. In July, 1948, 
a Senior Librarian was appointed to act 
as liaison librarian in making the re- 
sources of the State Library available to 
state workers. Monthly reading lists pre- 
pared on the subjects of management, 
personnel and accounting are distributed 
throughout the state departments ; books 
9 — 35349 



and articles useful in solving problems 
arising, directly from state work are as- 
sembled on request ; special assistance is 
given in preparation for civil service 
examinations. 

Manual 

California State Library Service to 
Other Libraries: Procedure Manual has 
been distributed to all county and munic- 
ipal libraries. If additional copies are 
needed for branch or department use, we 
shall be glad to supply them. School and 
university libraries and special libraries 
may obtain copies upon request. It is 
urged that this Manual be carefully 
studied by all concerned with State Li- 
brary loans. 

A revision of page 21 of the Procedure 
Manual, regarding Receipt Postals, be- 
came effective April 1, 1950. The State 
Library no longer sends out the return 
postals formerly accompanying each ship- 
ment of books. Under the current plan, 
the request slips which we return to the 
borrowing library, indicating what books 
have been sent, should be checked care- 
fully when received. Notification should 
be made to the State Library at once if 
the books have not arrived. 

Mail Labels 

We have, available on request, printed 
return labels for use on packages for 
inter-library loans. These are addressed 
to California State Library, with space 
in upper left corner for your address. 
The labels contain the statement, "Con- 
tents : Books mailed under Section 34.83 
P.L.&R." 

Unless libraries have their own printed 
labels, we urge them to use the return 
labels we are offering. It is important the 
library have its return address filled in on 
the labels when sending packages to the 
State Library. This is needed by our 
Shipping Room in keeping records. 

Films 

The State Library is building up a col- 
lection of motion picture films on library 
work which now includes the following 
titles : 

Effective use of library facilities in 
rural schools. (1938) 

Help yourself. (1950) 

It's your library. (1949) 

The librarian. (1947) 

Library on wheels. (1945) 

New chapters. (1948) 

Not by books alone. (1945) 

Use your library. (1948). Filmstrip. . 

As suitable items become available it 
is hoped to develop a collection of films

[Jan., 1951 



on technical aspects of librarianship, sup- 
plemented by others which will illustrate 
how libraries contribute to education, 
recreation and the enrichment of com- 
munity life. The collection should be use- 
ful for library students and professional 
conferences, as well as helpful for re- 
cruiting and public relations programs. 
Films are available for loan without 
charge to libraries for groups interested 
in library affairs. 

SUTRO BRANCH 
Helen M. Bruner, Supervising Librar- 
ian. 
The Sutro branch occupies space in 
the Public Library, Civic Center, San 
Francisco 2, and is open Monday to Fri- 
day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ; Saturday 9 
a.m. to 12 m. 

EMPLOYMENT REGISTRATION 

The State Library registers all library 
workers in California who are looking 
for positions and who wish to receive 
such assistance as this registration can 
supply. 

The State Library will be glad to know 
of libraries that want head librarians or 
assistants in any branch of their work. In 
writing for recommendations, libraries 
are urged to be as specific as possible, 
especially in regard to time position must 
be filled and salary offered. 

A librarian who wishes to be dropped 
from the Employment Registration list 
and a library that fills a position for 
which it has asked a recommendation will 
help the work greatly by notifying the 
State Library at once. 

For further information, write to the 
State Library, Sacramento 9, California.
